My daughter did competitive dance for years (she's the second from the left).  Sometimes the pictures aren't "good", they're more funny looking.

Brassman, the first thought I had when I saw the dancer is that it was a flower.  Interesting photo.  Love the colors and movement.  Also loved the wildlife except for the spider and well. . .  owls kinda bother me, but good photos.

Kim, love the photo of the dancers.  Your daughter is very beautiful.

The gallows in the haunted jail...
An "open" tattoo shop that apparently wasn't open when we knocked on the door. The funky color is what caught my eye  ;)
Back to the jail...a sign that explained the hand print on the wall. Unfortunately people aren't allowed into the cell any longer. It's a pretty big hand print.
For some of the newer folks...I travel with a group of girlfriends (one from Atlanta and a pair of sisters from the Toronto area) to see Air Supply concerts, though I've cut down on my trips  :P Anyhow, Jim Thorpe is a quaint town with fun shops. We bought mood rings for $2. We had so much fun playing with them for a week. My hand is the one with the bright polish  :P It was fun taking this picture because one of the sisters told our hands to smile for the picture...lol.

When I go away with my girlfriends, I travel with a cow...I know it's strange but it's me  ;) It was fun returning to the room to see how housekeeping would place my cow on the bed. You should have seen what they did when I had two cows...nevermind, I'll just post the picture  :P
Honestly...housekeeping did this :P
The martini bar at Mohegan Sun in CT. It's a mini planetarium and so pretty.
One of the most comfortable chairs in the martini bar...I felt like I was sitting in a Dr. Seuss chair :-)

What is it....   It's exorbitantly expensive!

Kids take dance class (jazz, tap, ballet, lyrical, modern, etc) at some dance studio.  They learn some choreography and apply music, now they have a specific dance with a specific song.  Now they can take that dance routine to a competition where they can compete against other routines and are judged on things like technique, choreography, etc.   It's a big deal for some girls (and a lot of moms who want to live through their daughters) because they can be on stage, be the center of attention, and wear sparkly stuff.

I get the picture. It's somewhere between show jumping and piano lessons.

Thanks!

LOL.

I don't know how you got that indoor action shot to come out so good, beautiful girls btw.

Sadly this is what my typical indoor photo shoot looks like.   :-\





The governor's dog.



Politics aside, I couldn't pass up the chance to see two presidential candidates give speeches as they normally never come to our state during a campaign (unless it's for a quick wave at the airport while the plane is being refueled).
"Authors get the most publicity at launch and need to strike while the iron is hot. If readers can't get their preferred format at that moment, they may buy a different book or just not buy a book at all." - An Amazon spokesman.

It doesnt matter how good or bad the product is, the fact is that people dont read anymore. 40% percent of the people in the U.S. read one book or less last year. The whole conception is flawed at the top because people dont read anymore. - S. Jobs

Another dance picture.  It's not my kid this time, it's someone on her team.

It's not easy, the ballrooms/auditoriums are dimly lit, the only light is on stage, and it gets even harder when the background is dark.  It's the magic of a fast lens.

I like the governor's dog on stage

Man, I'm jealous of your fast lens. Instead, I make a slow lens work for me.

Beautiful!

This is so cool. All these great pictures keep reminding me of others. I don't have any mule deer or presidential candidates, but I do have some butterflies. Neat way to share!

Gorgeous moth! This one isn't as purty, but he's maybe five inches wide:

Haa Haa, you got me there BrassMan.  Yours was a little more important than mine.  I have two more pictures to share from the Alaska Cruise.

Oh, jeez, is that refreshing right now.

Here's where we used to go camping. (It's about 50 miles west of Las Cruces, one of the locales in my books.)

Love all the butterfly photos, so here's a couple from me:

This was taken at a butterfly conservatory (I think in CO)



And this one at an outdoor wedding

JPMorgan, I love the Alaska photos.

We did a cruisetour back in 2003, and it was the trip of a lifetime.  I'm still trying to talk my husband into going back, it was just such a pricey vacation! :D
